This was our second visit to Marben Manor because Willem and Yvonne are fantastic hosts. Nothing is too much trouble for them as they 'push the boat out' to ensure you have a memorable stay. The Manor really is an oasis close to Joburg airport. Our last visit was only a night or two so we were perfectly 'chilled' after...

It is very near to JNB airport, about 10 minutes and offer free transfer from airport. Owners are very very kind and like to assist guests with a...

Willem, Yvonne and their son Ebenezer are simply the best hosts I've ever seen. The property itself is amazing with lovely grounds, friendly dogs and even friendlier guests. They offer pick up from and drop to the airport which makes it even easier for one to get to their place. I pit-stopped here on my way to a safari in...

A group of the Western Cape Highland Dancing team stayed at Marben Manor this past weekend (and have done so in previous years). It's like a home away from home. Yvonne and Willem go out of their way to make the team feel welcome from the minute you walk in the door! My teenage daughter said "It feels like coming...

My daughter and I have just returned from a wonderful safari in Botswana; our tour organizer had booked us in to Marben Manor because we flew in and out of Johannesburg, so Willem and Yvonne were our first and final experience of African hospitality. We came away feeling that we had discovered a new branch of the family. The accommodation...

A calm, relaxing oasis near the bustling Tambo Airport and very close to Federal Air (for flights to Kruger). Willem and Yvonne Bester could not have been more accommodating and gracious. Great rooms, full English breakfast and a wonderful evening meal with great South African wines!

What an absolute gem on the outskirts of Johannesburg. Their hospitality was outstanding and the food and conversation was stimulating. This B&B was in many ways, superior to a hotel. We were met at the airport and driven directly to our quarters. We had dinner there ( excellent- home cooking) and the next morning had a full English breakfast with...

Willem and Yvonne have a wonderful touch of wisdom hospitality and good humor. They have a grasp of South Africa's history and future. What a convenient and gracious way to start your adventure in this amazing land! Also really close to the airport for the tired and weary traveler!

I stayed already four times at this guest house and it is always a pleasure to come back. You give them a call and Willem or Yvonne will pick you up from the airport. They do their utmost best to feel you welcome at their guest house. Although you pay less it feels if you are at a 5 star...
